This isn’t the first WrestleMania for Orange County.
The Citrus Bowl housed WrestleMania 24 in 2008. It marked the first WrestleMania in Florida and second time outdoors.
That spectacular included a classic between HBK Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair in Flair’s retirement match. Also, Big Show battled boxer Floyd Money Mayweather. Undertaker won the World title over Edge. Kane captured the ECW belt over Chavo Guerrero Jr., and Randy Orton retained the WWE title in a triple threat against John Cena and Triple H.
Looks like the Amway Center will welcome the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday, April 1, 2017 and the big Raw live broadcast on Monday, April 3, 2017. Raw is the flagship program of WWE and is live 8 p.m. Mondays on the USA Network.
This will be the third time WrestleMania will be in the Sunshine State. In 2012, Miami-Dade County welcomed WrestleMania 28 with Rock vs. Cena at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.
